It’s Autumn already

 

IMG_1894Wow, it’s still August but getting cool here already.  60’s at night now and it’s been raining every day.

I haven’t posted for the last couple of weeks.  We haven’t had our regular schedule now for a few weeks.  I really can’t go on Saturday and they’ve done three Saturday’s now and one live Thursday at the studio.  I’m just not able to give up my Saturday’s right now so here is what has been happening with the apprentices the last couples of weeks.

Two weeks ago it was all about the Mediterranean garden Rob has created along his old driveway.  The driveway is really  long and they don’t use it so it’s a long driveways of pots containing succulents and other heat loving plants.  Many of the pots in this garden go inside during the winter and are brought out again next year as well as there are cannas that are stored over winter in the basement and planted again the next year.

They did a live at the studio all about Jade plants.  These are so easy to grow and take cuttings and make more.  Just stick them in some cactus or rocky soil and they don’t need much water.  Break off a piece and stick in the soil for another plant.  So easy.

This week they walked around the garden and showed you what is blooming for late summer/fall and did the ALS ice bucket challenge.

Take a peek at the last two to three week’s segment here:
